I told you how your hurt me, baby
But you don't care
Now I'm crying and deserted, baby
But you don't care
Ain't nobody tell me this is love
But you're immune to all my pain
I need you to tell me this is love
You don't care, well that's okay

Well, I care
I know you don't care too much
But I still care, la la la la la, la la la la la la

Oh, I care
I know you don't care too much
But I still care, la la la la la, la la la la la la

Ever since you knew your power
You made me cry
And now everytime our love goes sour
You won't sympathize
You see these tears falling down to my ears
I swear you like when I'm in pain
I try to tell you all my fears
You still don't care? That's okay

Well, I care
I know you don't care too much
But I still care, la la la la la, la la la la la la
Oh, I care
I know you don't care too much
But I still care, la la la la la, la la la la la la

Boy, maybe if you cared enough
I wouldn't have to care so much
What happened to our trust?
Now you've just given up
You used to be so in love
Now you don't care no more

Well, I care
I know you don't care too much
But I still care, la la la la la, la la la la la la
Oh, I care
I know you don't care too much
But I still care, la la la la la, la la la la la la

    The meaning of this song is your significant other has kind of fallen out of love with you, but you're still holding on with all of these feelings ! You're hurt but since you love them so much you're letting them know that even though they are distancing themself with you, the love is still there on their half anyway!!

    It's when you love someone so much that the hurt they've caused you in the past doesn't matter, even if their feelings aren't there anymore, you still care. Always have and always will.

    This is a beautiful song. It means that you don't care about us, our love etc. But i'll always care, even if you don't. I still care about you, i still love you dearly. I care about our trust, even though you don't care that much. We used to be so inlove, but now you don't care anymore at all.

    Someone who you thought cared about you and it hurts to know they've stopped but because you love them so much you still continue to care and hold onto the hope that they will learn to care for you

    Someone who shows that they don't care emotionally and the other person does have feelings and actually cares, but is now hurt because of the heartless persons actions
